We have a new square mold we've been working with and it's causing me some grief. Upon release there is a round mark within the chocolate. See the pictures.
This round/spherical look doesn't start showing until near the release stage of the mold. We checked it at 5m intervals and it's as if the chocolate's retraction from the mold is creating this look.
When colored and detailed you can't see it unless you're looking for it. But on a plain piece of chocolate it shines through pretty well.
You can see it even leaves the ring within the mold. We polish it out and it comes back the next time. Nothing we did seemed to help obviate it.
We did 500 units of these and about 85% of them showed this type of mal-detailing.
Anyone seen this before?
